Update 14th of September 2021, 10.00 a.m. UTC
Nicholas made landfall on the Texas coast as a Category 1 hurricane and downgraded to a tropical storm.
TS Nicholas is now located about 30 miles (50 km) SSW of Houston, Texas, and moving towards the north-northeast at 9 mph (15 km/h). It should move northeast at a slower pace later today, followed by a turn towards the east by Wednesday over Louisiana.
Maximum sustained winds are near 70 mph (110 km/h). Additional weakening is expected today and the system should downgrade to a tropical depression by Wednesday.
Nicholas will bring heavy rainfall and danger of life-threatening storm surge over the affected areas.
Update 13th of September 2021, 2.00 p.m. UTC
Tracking towards the north-northwest near 4 knots (7 km/h), Tropical Storm Nicholas is currently located near latitude 25.4 North, longitude 96.9 West.
Maximum sustained winds are near 51 knots (95 km/h). It is expected that the system will strengthen and could reach hurricane intensity as it moves closer to the northwest Gulf Coast.
Weakening is expected as Nicholas moves over land on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Nicholas is forecasted to pass near or just offshore the coasts of northeastern Mexico and south Texas this morning, and move onshore along the coast of the south or central Texas late this afternoon or evening.
TS Nicholas will bring heavy rainfall and danger of life-threatening storm surge.

@petra-pik Just wondering why the wind accumulation map is not changing pressure isobars over the days ahead. [0_1631608986367_Screen Shot 2021-09-14 at 6.42.38 pm.png](Uploading 0%)

See related discussion here; actually radar or satellite data layers (real time observations from past 12h up to Now) are not synchronized in time with pressure isolines data layer on animations (forecast from Now up to Now+10 days).
How would you do that ? Wind accumulation is the max gusts field during the next 12h, 24h, 3days, 5days or 10 days. So what pressure isobars would you like to see, at which date? At beginning of the time period, in the middle or at the end? You can choose a date first yourself with the time-line slider before selecting Wind accumulation to get the isobars at this date.
BTW this question has nothing to do with the remark concerning Radar and Satellite.
And a long list of non-synchronized parameters can be made in Windy... Radar and isobars, Satellites and isobars, Wind accumulation and isobars or wind particles, Rain accumulation and isobars or wind particles, New snow and isobars or wind particles…For me it's not an issue as you can turn them off if you don't like !

For me, as far as multiple data layers with (very) different validities are displayed on same map which only offers 1 single time reference (time bar), this is always an issue (and a big one: wrong/incomplete info). All data layers on a map should be synchronized with currently selected time on time bar; otherwise, UI should provide the time reference of each of them. Nothing on UI provides the validity of all those data layers which are not synchronized with time bar. Of course user can disable them all, but this is just a workaround, not a solution.
It is somehow like a map which would display "T°C" values for NOW, then some other "T°C" values for "once upon a time", while only NOW time reference is provided...
